Knowledge engineering research have thoroughly considered the problem of distributed knowledge acquisition and management over the last decades. In this paper, we claim that the success of the Web 2.0 platforms in conjunction with semantic technologies will have an impact on distributed knowledge engineering. Especially, (extended) semantic wikis offer a well-accepted tool allowing for a simplified access to the development process as well as providing an intuitive interface for knowledge sharing. We introduce the concept of knowledge wikis that are used as a collaborative knowledge engineering and sharing environment. Here, knowledge can be captured and used at different levels of detail ranging from text in natural language to formal rule bases.
